RWW 183 Picnic Style Dining Table Part 1
In this part 1 I focus on milling the quite substantial 10/4 and 12/4 Walnut stock and joint and gluing up the parts of the top. Here again I present my hybrid milling process that I detailed in episode 182, but it should be noted that it is possible to use this same process on the edges of the boards. A general rule of thumb is that you should not run a board through the planer whose width is more than 3 times the thickness. So with me using 2.5″ thick Walnut for the legs, I can comfortably run the 4″ width and quickly surface them on 4 sides.
